    Mushkin today announced a new DDR2 800 MHz, 2x 2GB dual-channel memory kit, the XP2 series model 996580X2. The product targeted at the mainstream thru value segments. Mushkin adopted a simplistic product design which includes two modules without heatspreaders. The modules operate at voltages between 2 and 2.1V and DRAM timings of 4-4-4-12. The modules use an 8-layer black coloured PCB to reduce electronic noise. Mushkin plans to sell this kit for 46 to 49 Euros including taxes.

    not too bad of a price wonder what chips they use. maybe it would be good for someone that doesn't overclock

    so 900mhz maybe for 24/7. I would think this would be good for maybe someone who doesn't want to overclock the ram much. maybe a HTPC

    I agree judging by the voltage and speed. ProMOS chips are very popular for manufacturers currently.

    Cheers pos, Really useful link man :toast:.

    That ram looks good and if the pricing is right then even better mushkin is usually way out of my budget.

    900? No way. I own OCZ XTC Rev. 2 ram and they are ProMOS as well, I oc'd them to 1002MHz before with some help and they seemed stable on most of my stress tests. So expect this memory to do better.

    4-4-4-12, 2.25V. It wasen't stable enough for Crysis on some of its levels so I slowed down. If my next mobo won't support it, I'm rolling with either Mushkin or Corsair.
